Hybrid Powder Mixer

The Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer is a dual-stage induction and dispersion system that quickly and efficiently disperses and mixes powders into a liquid stream. Versatile, cost-effective and easy to use, this inline, high-shear mixer produces homogeneous products at high yields and with minimum power consumption. The mixer is highly suitable for industrial applications, where process hygiene is critical.

Versatile hybrid powder mixer for various powder-liquid blending duties

  • Low installation costs using a single, highly efficient unit for mixing and Cleaning-in-Place (CIP)
  • Easily handles various powder particle sizes and liquid viscosities to achieve consistent, quality formulations
  • Shorter processing time and higher yields due to fast, efficient mixing of high dry matter concentrations
  • Reduced maintenance costs due to low spare parts inventory and service requirements

Ensure quality mixtures and reduce processing times with the Alfa Laval Hybrid Powder Mixer. The integrated process design boosts yield and promotes sustainable use of resources. Unmatched reliability and mixing efficiency make it suitable for powder induction, mixing and dissolution in industries that place high demands on hygiene and ease of cleaning, including food, dairy, beverage, biotech and home and personal care.

This inline high-shear mixer ensures gentle product handling, high dynamic shear, and complete powder dissolution. It simultaneously pumps the process mixture onward and speeds batch turnover through effective Cleaning-in-Place. 

In combination with an Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer, the Hybrid Powder Mixer is a critical component of a highly efficient cleaning-in-place (CIP) system. The powder mixer is available as a stationary or as a mobile unit.

How does the Hybrid powder mixer work

The two-stage Hybrid Powder Mixer is generally integrated into a circulation loop connected to a batch tank. After adding liquid ingredients to the tank, the Hybrid Powder Mixer circulates the liquid over the tank. If fast dispersion into liquid is required and tank volumes are larger than 1 - 2 m³, Alfa Laval recommends using an Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer. 

When adding the powder to the liquid, the powder is added via a funnel. When the C-ball valve under the funnel is opened, the injector positioned under the valve creates vacuum in the funnel outlet, drawing the powder into the rotor-stator mixer and pre-blends the products. The rotor/stator (single rings) creates the main shear, dynamically and efficiently blending powder and liquid into a homogeneous mixture. 


The pump impeller in the second stage creates the final shear and transfers the powder-liquid mixture into the tank under high pressure. Additionally, a portion of the powder-liquid mixture is sent via the injector bypass back into the mixer unit. The liquid flows from the injector aid in the venturi effect created at the funnel outlet, which enables the suction of powder into the liquid. 

When mixing is completed, the Hybrid Powder Mixer may be used as a discharge pump or as a Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) recirculation pump to clean the tank when used in combination with an Alfa Laval Rotary Jet Mixer.
